Firefighters Battle Groveland Blaze
Firefighters got the upper-hand on a wildfire burning in heavy brush at the site of a wildfire Friday off Second Garrotte Road and Merrill Road.
Fire officials were concerned with winds spreading the fire which had jumped a power line easement.
A CDF helicopter was called in to work the blaze…with ground crews… but was later released back to base.
Firefighters were to remain on the scene for total containment and then mop-up for quite some time Saturday afternoon.
